Baal Perazim Wellness, Inc and Baal Perazim Wellness & Health Services develops and manages community-based programs that break through barriers to providing wellness & health services to ALL Chicagoans. Take a look at a few of our ongoing efforts programs to confront the inequality, disparity, and inequity of primary health care services throughout Chicago, and beyond.
